Small Business and Micro Business Courses


Courses for running your own business

Small and medium businesses require managers who have enthusiasm, a high work ethic and business planning, financial management and marketing skills. Our small business courses cater for those planning to set up their business as well as existing small business owners wanting to develop their skills.

You will have one dedicated Student Adviser who will personally manage your program; and the benefit of a team around them to provide expert assistance in all subject areas.
